A Vital Issue Of a good deal more imiwrtauee to the people of Mississippi county than what becomes of tlio county convict farm or many of (he other issues that have received more or less extensive discussion in the current campaign is the matter of providing adequate educational opportunity for our children. The schools' of Hlytheville, Lcach- ville and Manila are nil faced with a condition which will force them to suspend or curtail the scope of their activities unless private contributions are forthcoming sufficient to meet their budgets. Other districts in the county are likely to find themselves in a similar predicament heforc long, and a good.many more are getting by simply because they are not spending enough money to provide even a good primary education for the children who attend their schools. There are two sides to the dilHcully. In the first place lack of a proper assessment and. constitutional limitations • upon school taxes make it impossible for most of the districts to raise sufficient! revenue. In tho second place division of the county into more than two 'score districts makes genuine ellicicncy in school management impossible. As a general proposition we are getting either inferior schools at a reasonable cost or good schools at an excessive cost. We need a county assessor and a county equalization board with uiywgh intestinal fortitude to'insist'upon and get an absolute equalization of assess• x mcnts in line with the average of such assessments over the state. We need •• constitutional authority for school districts to impose, on the basis of such an equalized assessment, a tax sufficient for the proper operation of their schools. We need the county unit system, to eliminate waste and inefficiency and to improve educational standards. The last legislature passed a county unit law. But because it provided certain exemptions, one of them apparently adopted for tlie special benefit of the law partner of this county's representative in the general assembly, it was held unconstitutional. That is something to think about for the future. , Education is fundamental. No community that fails to keep pace with educational progress is going to keep pace with economic and social progrtH- We in northeast Arkansas have prid«d ourselves upon our progressivcnqsB, and it i« true that natural advantages have helped us to attain a position In advance of thai occupied by other parts of out- own and many other • states. Hut as surely as we fail to provjde for the education of bur children we shall slide down the scale. A comity unit law, to give us the most for our school dollars, and then enough dollars lo make the school system under the unit law the equal of the best, are two essentials of continued progress. | SIDE GLANCES By George Clark Show Your Colors Perhaps It hasn't occurred to the various candidates In the county, district, and some ol the Elate races, tluit they nre doing much I he same thing as the freckle-faced kid that wanwd to get in the circus free because he hull nn honest fncc. These candidates nrc asking the people ol Cralgh;ad county to elect them to responsible ofTlces on grouiils somewhat similar to that of the kid with a serious case ct the malady that few real American boy* escape.

Craighcad county candidates arc speaking over the county, now, on tlic annual stumping tour and large crowds, now, have been reported at most of tho meetings, However, the crowds have bccijf disappointed by the fact thai few candidates have outlined to them, in offering themselves for office, tangible platforms that they will endeavor to carry out If elected. The voters should know what, the candidates plan to do It elected whether or no', the successful candidate is ubl3 lo curry out that program after clwjUon. It ECSU-.S that It Is largely a matter of fear upon the part of the candidates of offending some small group of voters by adopting a platform which they do not favor. Candidates arc straddling the fence on Ihc main Issues of the campaign. No definite stand on any vital question hns been taken. The voters arc entitled to kuow the plans of the candidates regarding vital issues at slnkc In the county campaign. Show your colors. What do you plnn lo do, Mr. Candidate, about roads, a new courthouse, economy In administration, Ihe stock law, an industrial survey of Cratglicnd county, the encouragement of dairying In the county, and ether vital Issues If tlic people of Craighcad ^vlll elevate you to Ihe position you nre asking?— Joncsboro Tribune. find for the Individual an occupation suited to his condition. With the heart, as with other portions of the body, it is extreme* ly difficult to separttc the effects thut arc purely mental from those that, are physical. Associated with the shock of the World War there were many cases of neuroclrcula- tory asthenia, or weakness of the heart and nervous system, in which patients sutler from palpitation and pains and weakness without any physical change actually being present. It Is an extremely difficult diagnostic task lo separate such cases from actual cases of heart disease. In all of this work the newer devices that have be.?n developed and the research that has come from the laboratories of physiology, pathology, and bacteriology throughout the world has been of Inestimable value. The endowments that continue, to grow for furthering such Investigation are going to make a much safer and happier world for men, women and children of the future.

Fees of Ohio .wjll not be an unqualified success In tile chairmanship of the Republican National Coinmittce being vacated by the Hon. Claudius Hus• ton. Senator Fess will not do the party any harm, which is much the imporlant thins, and he ought to do 11 considerable good by reinvesting the chairmanship with the odor of personal-'and political purity which -is possessed in almost unbelievable quantities by the gentleman, from Ohio. ~.

What Mr. l.ucas Will nil It is obviously very good strategy On the part of the Republican political wizards to insert Robert H. Lucas of Kentucky, the commissioner of : internal revenue, as clmlr- jmnn of the national, connnillec's executive committee with the as- isignmcnt to do all the heavy work ' In the coming campaign.

He was down having a lot of good, clean, simple fun and to have llpi>ed him oft to what was going on probably would have ruined hts holiday completely.

He's Always Been Faithful He is 60 years o;d now and Ihc chairmanship would come as a fit- tin? reward.
